Grilled Tofu Sandwich

Rate this Recipe


1 6 oz block extra firm tofu, (San Diego Soy Dairy or the vacuum-packed brands work best)
Avocado oil spray
Lemon Pepper, (or your favorite poultry seasoning)
Vegan mayonnaise
10 slices bread, (whole grainsour dough or rye)
2 heirloom tomatoes, sliced
1 avocado, sliced thin
1/4 purple onion, sliced thin
1/4 hot house cucumber, sliced thin
1/2 head red or green leaf lettuce


  1. Heat a grill to medium high. Remove the tofu from the package, lay it on its side and cut the block into 10 one-fourth slabs. Spray each piece on both sides with high heat avocado oil and transfer to the hot grill. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side until they begin to brown. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle both sides with the seasonings.
  2. For each sandwich toast two slices of bread lightly, spread vegan mayo over one side of each of the two slices.
  3. Transfer the bread to a serving plate or parchment paper. Layer the cucumbers and avocado over the bottom slice, sprinkle with seasoning or freshly ground pink salt and pepper. Next layer on two slices of tomato and sliced purple onion to taste. Top it with two slices of the seasoned grilled tofu, lettuce and second piece of bread.
  4. Secure the sandwich with picks or wrap it in parchment then cut it in half and serve. Grilled tofu is a great plant-based substitute for traditional hot turkey or chicken sandwiches.
